According to a study by the American Psychological Association, elephants love lullabies, and classical music can even soothe them.


A video of Faamai the Elephant uploaded to Youtube on May 23, 2016, is proof that even these majestic giants can be swayed by a good lullaby and a gentle touch.

As reported by Faith Tap, Faamai gets drowsy and eventually falls asleep when her caretaker, Saengduean Lek Chailert, sings to her while swatting flies away.

The video shows Faamai curling her trunk around Lek's head before lovingly pulling her closer for a hug. Faamai then swats the flies away with a red rag while singing.


Famaai drops to her knees and lies on her side. She then goes into a deep state of relaxation while Lek leans against her, still serenading her.

Lek works at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand, where she regularly sings to the elephants in her care.

She is known as an elephant whispered and videos of her singing to elephants have gone viral. She has more than 52,000 followers on Facebook alone.


She has been interviewed by National Geographic, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, and BBC, to name a few.

The Elephant Nature Park has facilities in Kanchanaburi, Suri, Cambodia, and Phuket as well, and information about the Elephants are posted on the Save Elephant Foundation on Facebook and Elephant News Online.

Lek has also been involved in events to garner support for the foundation from animal lovers 'from all of the USA,' and has met with foundations like Paws, Global Sanctuary Brazil, and Gentle Barn.

'These Elephants need a place to call home, a place of sanctuary. It is time to end their suffering and provide for them a better home.'
